Apple’s latest M1 Mac mini has been virtually absent from our ongoing deal coverage over the past several months, but that changes today as a rare price cut goes live on Amazon. The retailer is now dropping the baseline 256GB model down to $599 shipped. Marking about as rare of a price cut as they come, we haven’t seen this model on sale in several months. It’s down from $699 and delivers $100 in savings in order to comes within $29 of our previous July mention over the summer.
The latest Mac mini sports a compact footprint won’t take up space on your desk, but also lets you plug in a monitor of your choice for fitting in with your workstation’s demands. Its 512GB of internal storage is also backed by 8GB of RAM, as well as a pair of Thunderbolt ports and an HDMI output. And with a new M2 model nowhere to be found in the current lineup, this is the best option out there with such a compact footprint. Get a closer look in our launch coverage and then head below for more.
An easy recommendation for pairing with your new Mac mini would be picking up Satechi’s USB-C Stand and Hub with your savings. This accessory sports a unique under-Mac design that delivers front-facing I/O alongside a matching silver aluminum construction to look the part. Or you could save even more by going with the previous-generation model at $80, which ditches the built-in SSD storage found on the newer model.
All of this week’s other best deals are now underway over in our Apple guide. So far we’re tracking some notable holiday markdowns across many of its latest devices that just released earlier this fall including M2 iPad Pros, Apple Watch Series 8 models, and more.
